Welcome to Lynnwood Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a health profession specialising in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. Chiropractic combines the Greek term cheir (hand) and praxis (practice) to describe a treatment done by hand.

Chiropractors focus on the intimate relationship between the nervous system and the spine. Immobility of the spine can affect the nervous system and for many conditions, chiropractic can restore the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.

A joint is the functional moving unit made up of two or more neighboring bones. The body has spinal joints (which consist of two neighboring vertebrae) and extremity joints (consisting of wrist, ankle, knee, hand, etc.). When a joint in the body becomes misaligned or restricted (subluxation), it affects all the surrounding structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments etc.).  A wide range of health problems occur due to these underlying restrictions. Chiropractors are trained to detect these underlying restrictions and to correct them using the Chiropractic Adjustment.

A Chiropractic adjustment is a high velocity, short lever thrust technique. An accompanying audible release of gas is caused due to the release of the joint pressure during which gapping of the joint occurs as well.
